True 3D plotting with matplotlib


On the topic of publication-quality 3D vector graphics (but unfortunately
not matplotlib...):

I like Sketch. Although a bit old by now, you can still get it from It has a bit of a learning curve (similar to
TikZ) but is nice for basic 3D plots.

I even used it to make a very basic vector animation viewable with Adobe
Acrobat Reader (see slide 16 of the presentation at
- will send source if interested).

Good luck,
